    I would like to know if "the" should be in the sentence "I'm at (the) secondary school/high school" because you say "I go to secondary school/highschool".

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Same in Australia. We say i'm in high school

    Unless you mean to imply that your located in the high school at a particular time "i'm at high school" is acceptable.

    So, the right preposition is "in" and "the" isn't to be used.

    Thank you for your help.

    You would say "I' m at the High School." (general location) if you are speaking about the present time. I hear people saying I'm in the High School, referring to the present time for example, to answer the question, Where are you located? (right now) (specific location) I'm in the High School Office.
